London - British boxer Amir Khan has left his trainer Freddie Roach as he looks to revive his career after two losses over the last year.

Khan said in a Twitter post on Saturday that they "had a good professional chat and maybe in the future we work together."

Khan lost his WBC and WBA light-welterweight titles with a surprise fourth-round defeat to unheralded American Danny Garcia in July.

He had previously lost in a split decision to Lamont Peterson in a controversial fight with the American in December. A rematch was ordered but was canceled when Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone, restoring the WBA belt to Khan.
